Out & About

Around Black Dog

With it’s many footpaths including The Two Moors Way the local area is ideal for walkers, bird watchers, cyclists, and for those who simply want to get away from the crowds and enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside.

This is where the skies really are dark at night and the only sounds you will hear are the animals and birds in the fields… and possibly the odd tractor!

Food. The nearest village shop is 3 miles away in the village of Kennerleigh. There are also a number of local pubs serving food including The Black Dog Inn which is within 5-10 mins walking distance (it is advisable to check opening times).
